  • 1 recipe pizza dough or store-bought dough
  • ½ cup (120ml) tomato sauce
  • 1 cup (112g) mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup (150g) cooked ham, thinly sliced, bite size pieces
  • 1 cup (150g) pineapple chunks, canned or fresh
  • Red pepper flakes, for garnish, optional


Preheat the oven to 475°F/250°C.  

Take a large 12” (25cm) pizza pan and dust with flour and set aside.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pizza dough to a 13” (30 cm) circle.  Gently roll the pizza dough onto the rolling pin and place it onto the pizza pan.  Crimp the edge to form a small raised crust.  Spread the tomato sauce over the dough to within 1” (2.5cm) of the edge.  

Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese evenly over the sauce.  Arrange the ham and pineapple pieces evenly over the cheese and bake for 10-12 minutes until the crust is crisp and golden and the cheese has melted.  Remove from the oven.   Let set for 5 minutes before serving.

Cook’s Note:

*Store-bought dough should rest outside the refrigerator for 1 hour to allow for rising and easy rolling.
